  Mountall doesn't swapon with 'ignore'-d swap in fstab

Status in “mountall” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: mountall

  I use Maverick.

  If there are more entrys in fstab with 'none' as mountpoint they
  overwrite each other in mountall internal list unless the fstype is
  swap. I had 2 swap partitions, one for ubuntu and one for arch, and
  changed the latter type to 'ignore' but that overwrote the swap in
  mountall as mentioned before, and it was not mounted.

  fstab and patch to make new list item also with ignore types attached.
